Cannabis Plant Explosion Critically Injures 2

Two men were severely burned in an explosion at the New MexiCann Natural Medicine cannabis manufacturing facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Two men were in critical condition Thursday after an explosion at the New MexiCann Natural Medicine cannabis manufacturing facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The explosion Thursday at the New MexiCann Natural Medicine facility in Santa Fe was the second explosion that has injured workers at the plant in the last five years, the Albuquerque Journal reported.

The two victims--who were transported to a Denver hospital by air ambulance--were in intensive care with burn injuries. 

The incident was under investigation. OSHA previously fined New MexiCann Natural Medicine $13,500 for an incident in 2015 for a dozen violations. Employees of the company were also injured in that incident.
